Said Jon Aisbitt, Man chairman, in a statement announcing the move:
“While we are sorry to see Ruud step down from the board, I am delighted that he has accepted this new advisory role. His extensive experience and relationships with institutional investors in Europe will bring significant value to Man and our clients.”
